McCain wins Tenn., state's 11 electoral votes

Republican John McCain has carried Tennessee in the presidential race against Democrat Barack Obama.

The call was based on an analysis of voter interviews, conducted for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International.

The win give McCain the state's 11 electoral votes.

In Knoxville, 55-year-old Arleen Erbele said she voted for McCain because her son has been in Iraq for two deployments and if we "pull out and lose Iraq, his being there was for nothing."
